Tips & tricks

  • If you find it hard to keep track of the rows (for example, which rows belong to the separator) take a contrast yarn and weave that horizontally through your rows on the top and bottom. When you finish, take your contrast yarn out.
  • We’re finishing the crochet for the backpiece this week. Next week we’ll start the large embroidery for this piece.
  • The row numbers in purple indicate the row count when you count the rows continuously throughout the weeks.

Separator

Please note: It’s important to count your rows carefully, as you will embroider the big backpiece in between the separator of last week, and this week. If you’re not confident that you’ve counted your rows right, you can also choose to create this separator in week 8, after you finish embroidering the backpiece.

The separator is crocheted in rows 51-57 (rows 203-209). Take colour A and use a 4.0 mm crochet hook, if you tend to chain loosely. If it pulls too much or if your shawl becomes concave at the ends, switch to a larger hooksize for the separator.

Separator row 1 Keep your yarn at the wrong side of your shawl. Stick your hook top-down in between the 3rd and 4th st from row 55. Pull up a loop, stick your hook in between the 4th and 5th st from row 54, pull up a loop, pull through loop on hook (ss made). Pull up loop between the 5th and 6th st from row 53, make ss, pull up loop between the 6th and 7th st from row 52, make ss. Pull up loop between the 7th and 8th st from row 51, make ss. First diagonal line made.

Pull up loop between the 8th and 9th st from row 52, make ss. Pull up loop between the 9th and 10th st from row 53, make ss. pull up loop between 10th and 11th st from row 54, make ss. Pull up loop between 11th and 12th st from row 55, make ss, pull up loop between the 12th and 13th st from row 56, make ss.

Continue making diagonal ss lines. Every repeat consists of 10 slip stitches, 5 diagonally up and 5 down. End with making a ss over the 4th-to-last dc from row 53, meaning that your last diagonal line consists of 4 instead of 5 ss. Cut yarn.

Separator row 2 Pull up a loop in between the 3rd and 4th st from row 52, pull up a loop in between the 4th and 5th st from row 53, make ss, pull up a loop in between the 5th and 6th st from row 54, make ss (so over the ss from your other row!), pull up a loop in between the 6th and 7th st from row 55, make ss, pull up a loop in between the 7th and 8th st from row 56, make ss.

Pull up loop between the 8th and 9th st from row 55, make ss. Pull up loop between the 9th and 10th st from row 54, make ss. pull up loop between 10th and 11th st from row 53, make ss (so over the ss from your other row!). Pull up loop between 11th and 12th st from row 52, make ss, pull up loop between the 12th and 13th st from row 51, make ss.

Continue making diagonal ss lines. Every repeat consists of 10 slip stitches, 5 diagonally up and 5 down. End with making a ss over the 4th-to-last dc from row 55, meaning that your last diagonal line consists of 4 instead of 5 ss. Cut yarn.

Optional but recommended: Take a contrast thread, and weave it between rows 57 from last week en row 1 from this week (rows 152/153, the center of the backpiece), and another contrast thread between row 50/51 (rows 202/203) of this week (the end of the backpiece).

To clarify: This week you have crocheted 57 rows for the backpiece. Row 1-50 (rows 153-202) will be used for the second half of the backpiece. Row 51-57 (rows 203-209) will be used to crochet the separator on.
